Two key players set for Wigan return

Leuluai injury return

Thomas Leuluai and Sam Powell will return for Wigan in Thursday’s derby against St Helens at Langtree Park.

Leuluai hasn’t played since breaking his jaw for the second time in five months against Catalans on April 23, while Powell returns following an ankle problem.

They replace Josh Woods and Romain Navarrete in Shaun Wane’s 19-man squad as the Warriors look to complete a league double over Saints after beating them 29-18 on Good Friday.

Meanwhile new St Helens coach Justin Holbrook has opted to name an unchanged team from the side that beat Hull FC 45-0 at Magic Weekend on Sunday.
